During the early 60s, the insatiable appetite in Britain for American rhythm & blues music among a growing coterie of young musicians, modernists and other such hip kids was mostly being ignored by the major record companies. 

Enter Guy Stevens, whose crusade to popularise rhythm & blues would shortly encompass not only his stint as DJ at London’s hottest R&B-oriented club, but his pioneering work as consultant to major UK record labels (resulting in big-selling hits), his own record import business, and, icing on the cake, his own record imprint – the legendary Sue label. Those several facets of Guy’s career have inspired the contents of this album – a collection of wondrous black music with a decade- spanning vitality that still excites, is still rivetingly authentic, still heartfelt. Some are now well-known, others so obscure that this is their first-ever reissue on any format – but at the time that Guy introduced them to his audience, all were a revelation.
